Holiday In Cambodia by Dead Kennedys

Tabs

[two versions]


        ===================

        HOLIDAY IN CAMBODIA

        ===================

By The Dead Kennedys  (Composed by Jello Biafra)


Chord diagramA augmentedA fantastic song.....from my formative years [ B-) ] .....just get the
evil power of the opening riff right and you're there!

This is an alternative tab for this song to the one already here.

I've tabbed it for the different riffs.....individually spelt out first,
then the way I play them together with the words.

(P.S. I can't take credit for working it out.....Raymond Amour did that
for me)
